Tiffany ain't a bad actress. I didn't care for her till I saw her in Self Made with Octavia Spencer and then became a fan after checking out some of her stand-up comedy specials. She might be able to pull it off. I'll probably check it out.

I wonder what Flo-Jo's family (Al and Jackie) has to say about this.

I went to the Deadline link Snitch included and see that Al Joyner is onboard and is training Tiffany. That's still no guarantee that this will be good. But she might just pull a Jamie Fox move and get an award. Gon keep my eye on this.

No she's not a bad actress BUT Flo Jo is someone who left us way too soon and gets little recognition today. Wonder what her other family members think about this because it may just be a money grab for her widower.

A mess, Flo Jo is a legend and I just don't see Tiffany doin her justice unless Flo Jo was a hot mess in her private life. No tea no shade, it is what it is.

These actors know good and damn well they can't pull it off and take it anyway.
